MonoDevelop 1.0 and Mono 1.9.1 on openSUSE 10.3

This weekend I moved from Ubuntu 7.10 to openSUSE 10.3 after using the distro in the vmware image that the mono-project hosts. I was impressed how quick it was installed and still impressed by the ease of use of its package management. I am now running the latest mono binaries (1.9.1) together with MonoDevelop 1.0. I needed to add the same repository for both and after upgrading most packages through yast I was finished.

I tried opening a visual studio 2008 solution which contains an .net 2.0 project with nunit tests. It is a library used by a service. Ofcourse the service won’t work but the library uses sockets, generics and multi-threading code and wasn’t sure that my unit tests would all be successful but they did!

Next test will be to see if the service can easily be ported and see if the nhibernate code will also work on mono and still get the same performance as the application on windows.
